Conquering Confined Hillside Lifting

When a hillside home in Austin, Texas needed a tool to provide powerful lifting in very limited access area, builders turned to a mini crane from Inman Texas Company.

Crews at the custom residential project needed a way to install structural steel beams but lacked the area needed to bring a standard crane to lift the beams into place.

Inman Texas Company provided them with a Maeda MC285-2 Mini Crane. Despite of having a width of only 30 inches, the MC285 can lift up to 6,210 pounds up to over 31 feet. Proof that the right tool for the job isn’t always the largest.
